Grogu will Grow-gu on me, I'm sure (yes, please, groan at the pun, it was bad).
As someone who enjoyed Clone Wars, Ahsoka *worked* so well for me. I didn't have a problem with her sabers visually, but I did notice that they showed a lot of restraint in their sound design. Barely any idle hum, the swinging sounds were quite soft, and even when impacting the beskar spear the sound was more of a metallic clang than the familiar saber clashing sound.
Having a Jedi come in and make this be a tipping point of the season, if not the series - now we know who Grogu is, his backstory has been decently explained, and they've outright said that Din is a father figure and shown how much they both care for each other - is a good move, and for those up on those parts of the lore, having it be Ahsoka is great. She is a bit overly dramatic at times (standing on the courtyard wall behind Din - I said, "Dramatic much?" and Steph replied, "Well, remember her master *was* Anakin - also the effect of literally disappearing into the fog at the start which I *loved*), and her movements really matched her show presence as well, while still being more grounded in live-action.
Great episode, perhaps my favorite of the season. Though I am getting a little tired of the, go to a planet and be told which planet to go to next, format. Hopefully the temple planet next episode will stay there for a couple episodes.
